Last year I ran across a roll of developed Panatomic-X in a box and what I saw on it made me unpack my film scanner and scan a few images. They are shots of me and my generally homemade film developing equipment in the basement of our house in Southern Illinois. I was 16 yrs old and a Junior in high school. I called the business 'Custom Photo Labs' and because I gave 24-hour service on B&W it soon outgrew the basement and became a family business and got state-of-the-art Pako photofinishing equipment and moved into a building. The second image is the last on the roll, of me tweaking the S.U.'s on my "route car" with which I daily picked up and delivered films to drugstores in neighboring towns. We eventually had every drugstore between Carbondale, IL and Terre Haute, IN.

It was black with red leather and wire wheels. My first car.
